This -- back now for a moment to the DNC platform which has gotten a lot of attention for what is not and it.
Democrats striking any reference to Jerusalem from their platform this time around avoiding the holy cities disputed status as Israel's capital.
Back in 2088.
The platform read this -- Jerusalem is and will remain the capital of Israel the parties have agreed that Jerusalem is a matter for final status negotiations.
This year it reads like this a just and lasting Israeli Palestinian accord producing two states for two peoples.
Would contribute to regional stability and help sustain Israel's identity as a Jewish and democratic states joined now by ambassadors yeah.
-- former Israeli ambassador to the UN at a Fox News contributor welcome ambassador.
Give me your thoughts on this what you think about it.
Glove off I am obviously is.
Most Israelis are very disappointed that the very -- it.
Because this is not tough.
Forget fullness this is not only thing Jerusalem this is -- Jerusalem.
This is the pull back from Jerusalem and the way it's this administration's.
Withdrawal from -- Jerusalem was always there.
Jerusalem laws and these.
At the hall of the matter and as you just quoted -- walls and the democratic.
Not -- four years ago it was -- did very loudly and very clearly by President Obama.
Even before you with a -- I was there in the front draw the -- annual conference where you made it very clear.
And it followed Jerusalem are important -- some of them is -- how will forever be the capital of Israel removing it is.
To me a very ominous sign and a very negative message.
To the Israelis who to whom Jerusalem is so important to every fifth of -- of the -- Christians Muslims and Jews whom Jerusalem.

But my question to you is -- you know the president is not bound by the Democratic Party platform we saw examples.
Where Mitt Romney had differences with the GOP platform.
So if the president were -- sort of reiterate and restate his commitment to Jerusalem as the capital city.
Would that assuage your concerns.
It certainly will mollify think of the present them -- especially if he does that the in this speech.
Which is so widely anticipate that tomorrow.
It will I think.
Make it very clear that he still this commitment as he claims he's -- at all.
-- Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
The hope very much that the president will do so.
I think it will you very very encouraging.
To a loss in -- -- who.
See in the United States of America off.
Our strongest and closest -- And I think it will allow IA a lot of faith he -- -- That some Israelis feel.
